Full Description

Have you ever wondered about the enigmatic world of consultancy and whether it might be the right fit for you? If the title 'consultant' has ever piqued your curiosity, then this book is your passport into that realm. Drawing from firsthand experience, the author takes us on a journey from initial skepticism to eventual admiration for consultants. With a memorable encounter as the pivot, she recalls an old colleague's dismissive description of consultants: "They ask you for your watch and then tell you the time." Yet, her personal experience was vastly different. She met a consultant who was insightful, engaged, and who connected the dots in a way that seemed effortlessly brilliant.

So, what is a consultant? This book delves into the various shades of consultancy, busting myths and reshaping perceptions. While traditional definitions, like Schein's 2016 explanation, depict consultants as mere distant experts, the book advocates a more modern and relevant perspective: Consultants as partners and helpers.

The world of consultancy is diverse, ranging from deep subject matter experts like HR technology aficionados, data aficionados with access to vast amounts of invaluable information, embedded consultants offering support during high-demand periods, to seasoned strategic advisors with tales of battles won alongside their clients.

In this enlightening book, you'll not only gain an understanding of what it truly means to be a consultant, but you'll also be equipped to decide if the thrilling world of consultancy is your calling. Dive in and explore the multifaceted realm that beckons those with a passion for problem-solving, innovation, and strategic partnership, and a true and deep connection with clients.
